Being of Sound Mind


You can find me in the center;
In the center of all things fearful-
Connected through the forces of self
reliant grief-
Aligned to the walls I've constructed with
purpose; Never venturing out; Letting
nothing; Nobody; venture in;
You can find me in the center of
this place I fear- This place
I fear will not protect me; From me

I've squandered all my riches in dreams;
hopes and heart; Handed it over
freely to the hounds of realistic
horrors- Placed it; Hand fed it to
the foaming mouths that call me;
Know me; as worthless-
Oh I lay on the blanket wet with
a need to be mended- Naked before
the blindfolds and blind eyes-
They see me not; As I see myself

I've angered the silence; 'til it screams
for redemption; I've taunted the cries;
'til it returns to silence-
Thus I've recited it's name over and over
'til the heads of wisdom no longer
I've set fire to the fortress of agony; To
the rounds of the sqaure tables of
Then stood back to watch it burn


- I Bin Laden being of sound and twisted
mind; Having made no truce with myself
or anyone else; Will one day die;
And I'll be forthright in knowing that
the hounds of hell will not even take the
time to piss on my fiery grave-

If I ever catch him he'll die in a womans dress, with the Morman bible in his hands, along with him I'll bury all the perversions of man. Great pen Lisa

Lisa, Lisa, Lisa, this is fantastic! Bold. In your face. NEEDED writing. He's nuts. Pure t nuts. There is no sane bone in his body...we will not bow down to terrorists and their threats. Let 'em have it! And you did, with this stunning write--definitely saving. Thank you!

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

I'm with you and the comments before mine! Lisa when you write in this genre, no one can top you! This is fantastic, wish it could be read by the freak and his followers!Thank you!

I concur with Sherry below entirely !
This is a composition which had to be wrote, to expose the wretchedness and evil of this madman Bin Laden and his wicked henchmen Al Queda !
I echo Sherry's sentiments too " Death to Bin Laden, and may his soul burn in Hell! "
Reviewed by Sherry Heim 1/20/2006
Whoo-hooo, Lisa...this is a great one! I wondered, yesterday, when I saw the news of that assh*** trying to get us to buckle by entering a truce with him, that would be of his "fair" ideals, if someone might write of it here. I should have known it would be you...THANK YOU! I don't believe that he can be trusted to possess the credibility to adhere to any truce even if one were proposed and to taint such a request with a threat shows that he has no intention of fair, intelligent or reasonable negotiations. He is trying to place "blame" of any attack back on us, so he can say, "I warned you." This is just a feeble attempt to manipulate us and will never be seen in the light he wishes it to be. I have grown tired of his threats and his self-imposed godly status; he is an unhealthy man who cannot survive living in some cave for much longer. I say the only truce I am willing to accept is his head, burning on a stick. Wonderful write, Lisa. I appreciate your point of view and the power with which you express it. Death to Bin Laden, and may his soul burn in Hell!
Take care,
